EAU CLAIRE — Classes and scheduled activities at the University of
Wisconsin-Eau Claire will continue today, recognizing the importance of
students, faculty and staff coming together to offer one another support as
today’s national tragedy continues to unfold.
“Everyone is confused, stunned and affected by
today’s events,” Chancellor Donald Mash said. “It’s extremely important
that we – as a campus community -- support one another, be it in a class, a
meeting or in informal conversation.
“We think that we can be of most help to all members of
the campus community by coming together as we struggle to deal with our emotions
during this time of crisis.”
Faculty are encouraged to conduct their classes in such
ways to offer support to students and other members of the campus community, be
that through conversation, gathering around a television or whatever else they
think is appropriate, Mash said.
UW-Eau Claire administrators will continue to monitor the
events and will provide additional updates via e-mail and the media as
